Film on Natives of Central America and South America

Students will continue shooting their film on the Olmec, the Maya, the Aztec, and the Inca. Students have created a script that show an alternate universe (what would have happened if Atahualpa had not granted an audience to Pizarro)? Students will continue shooting that script. The script, simply entitled "Mayan Script" can be found in each student's drive if you are interested in reading it. We have made some changes to accommodate absences, and we have added content to further depict knowledge and understanding. Our hope is to have it completed (edited) by the end of the year.

The last homework assignment of the year is as follows: What are the three main reasons the Spanish Conquistadors conquered the land we now know as Central and South America?

As usual, if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to drop me an e-mail at bidellb@nhalv.org.
